    Just been back. Here the pics..................

    Spent half an hour changed to lower resolution and trim it to below the pittance 148.4Kb at 3 files at a time.

    Someone can do better I can PM the original shots and you can process it.

    Self explainatory. Merc stand. I asked about sl black, they said sorry not here. The last pic here is Honda concept car.

    and the last one..Maserati

    Tips.

    1. If you intend to drive there, parking all day for £10.
    2. Free food if you are hungry at Auto magazine and Citroen stands : salmon, cous cous and a glass of wine.
    3. Goodies
    from Highway Agency: water bottles, map booklet,
    from DVLA: sun shield for the dashboard
    from Chervolet : music CD

    Very low key if you do not have free tickets, don't bother to go. Beemer is missing. Ford, Jaguar and Vauxhall got big stands I know you guys are not interested so no pics. AC Schnitzer for customed Beemer are there, so is Morgan. Hybrid mostly japanese : Lexus, Honda, Toyota. The Nissan GTR is there. The Hummer look interesting than the pic in post #1.

    UB40 were playing last night. Tonight Alice Cooper and tomorrow StatusQuo, 28th July Blondie, 30th July Deep Purple, 31st July Chicago and 2nd Aug Meat Loaf.

    There is an SL race at Brooklands Museum at Weybridge, Surrey in August.

    I wont be going. Ive never seen the point of paying for looking at cars. Its not as even you can get up and close to the interesting ones. And who wants to sit in a Focus or Golf when you can do it for free at your local dealer?
    Its like paying to go in a shop.
    Just my opinion.

    Perhaps that's why the free tickets were so popular
